An amazing ten days of intensive training in business startup topics came go an end for a group of Porirua people on Friday 13th October. 30+ celebrated as they received their graduation certficates from Porirua Mayor Mike Tana. Each participant expressed delight about their learning experience and the sense of community that had been created around them. Their feedback suggests that this has been an incredibly formative experience for them and their businesses and business ideas.
The Porirua City Council along with Te Puni Kokiri and WREDA were principal sponsors of this inaugural PopUp Business School in Porirua. School NZ founder Tony Henderson-Newport assisted by Anna Watson and a Team of Business mentors presented the school in the Theatre at Te Rauparaha Stadium.
The PopUp Business School concept originated in the UK from where Tony has brought it after participating in Schools there. Plans are afoot to offer Schools throughout Aotearoa. Check with the Events Page on this website for information about the next School.
Although it's only half way through, participants in Aotearoa-New Zealand's first PopUp Business School are buzzing with excitement and enthusiasm about their learning experience. Thirty local Porirua business entrepreneur's are into the second week of this business training event at Te Rauparaha Arena theatre. Each day business development skills are being presented and discussed, local business people are sharing their business experiences and participants are building their business websites and linking them with social media.
A-NZ PopUp Business School founder Tony Henderson Newport has brought the concept from the United Kingdom where he has presented in similar Business Schools there. Tony has gathered around him a think tank of business entrepreneurs and an operational team who are sharing in presenting the School content.
